I was inspired to create these figures during a time when we’ve had to endure and overcome. This represents the ever-hopeful spirit in all of us reaching out to soar, leap and dance in the midst. “Spirit Soar”, “Spirit Leap” and "Spirit Dance"
These hand drawn designs mimic the growth rings of a piece of wood. I've always been fascinated by the inner rings of a tree. Each layer tells a unique story of the life that it lived, not visible until its life is done.
Butterflies often symbolize the promise of hope, growth and transformation. These three linger for a moment in time together on the page in honor of three special little ones in my life.

I took this photograph in Duluth, Minnesota along the shore of the great Lake Superior. I love how the birds almost paused in the air as they caught the wind lifting above the lake on this breezy, summer day.
